Adaeze Yobo


The 2014 edition of the Africa Fashion Week London kicked off on Friday 8th August 2014. The fashion event was for top as well as emerging designers to showcase their fab collections.

24-year-old Adaeze Yobo who is the celebrity ambassador for this year’s event, showed up in a dress which features a white lace long sleeve bodice and gold brocade skirt. It was styled with silver drop earrings, a black clutch and sparkly Christian Louboutin heels.

It was a family affair as her mother Abigail Fashanu and her step sister Amal Fashanu, the daughter of football legend John Fashanu, also stepped on to the scene in stylish looks.

Also seen were TV personality Funmi Iyanda and designer Ade Bakare.

      But she’s 24 though. She was born in 1990. Don’t try to stir up any rubbish with your not needed sarcasm.

      She’s actually 24 🙂

      August 10, 2014 at 12:57 pm

      But she is 24. Wasn’t she 18 in 2008 when she won mbgn?


      August 10, 2014 at 2:46 pm

      Apart from the age, this entire post just seems like an ad for the Fashanus. BN when did you morph into a certain other “blog”?

      August 10, 2014 at 4:24 pm

      LOL at “without any fear in your hearts” but I think they’re right. She was pretty young when she won MBGN wasn’t she?

      When did she win MBGN? She was just out of secondary school, do the maths. Her date of birth has been consistent. I don’t understand people’s obsession with other people’s age. I have come to realise that people that have issues with their age and those of others are people that feel that they have underachieved at their own age so they can’t believe that others can be how old they are (most times young) and have all they have. If it’s not the case, why bother – it’s either it’s true or not- in any case, it doesn’t add to or remove from yours.

      August 10, 2014 at 8:39 pm

      true talk. her face looks good and her weight is better, but the hairstyle and dress sense are nothing to write home about.

    Dear bella naija, you ought to feature brands, esp, the new brand / unknown brand /brands offering something completely different from the norm) that took part in the show,so as to motivate and celebrate them, rather than focusing so much on what ‘celeb’ was there/who wore what!!!!

    Ada’s dress doesn’t cut it for me at all…..for an ambassador of the event, she coulda done better. Menaye Donkor (Ghanaian model and wife of Ghana blackstars player sulley muntari) hosted last year and she really came hard. …but anyways comparing her with Ada won’t be fair, she’s an international model.

    Adaeze is a real beauty! That dress is lovely! And it’s an editorial. The top is lace! Classics and timeless. The skirt is beautiful and goes with her loubs. For those saying it’s not a good look, you really do not know Fashion. Come take a master class from me

    August 10, 2014 at 8:38 pm

    amal looks good. adaeze also looks good. as for abigail fashanu, she looks local with that hairstyle and bleached skin. funmi iyanda is a lovely woman but bleached her skin and had a nose job, and she looks worse, how does she do it? i never thought she could look worse, but she’s proved me wrong. i prefer her old look.

    hideousness everywhere!

    August 11, 2014 at 11:36 am

    Abigail Fashanu isn’t bleached though. you are the one who said Rita Dominic is naturally light. It’s obvious you don’t know the difference. Where do you think Adaeze got her lightness from? There are very many naturally light people and Abigail and Adaeze are among. Funmi nose job? Ha! Ha!! She needs a refund. That nose is still as wide as ever. Don’t be deceived by pictures.

    I still remember when my 15 year old cousin had surgery in Nigeria and the hospital could not be convinced that she was that young.


    August 12, 2014 at 10:12 am

    That Fashanu chic is a natural beauty – Ada is beautiful as well, but, i’m so not keen on her dress
